    “We were terribly disappointed with the accommodation at Coinage Hall.”

    Have been trying to get a resolution for 6 days. The unit was rented for a week, and we only stayed for 12 hours. Sykes cottages and the owner do not respond to our request for a full refund. The unit reaked of inspect spray which resulted in a full blown asthma attack. The front door could not be unlocked from the inside. The fireplace could not be lit, nor could the stove. Our first impression was of the exterior entranceway and we walked through cigarette butts, empty wine bottles and trash ...

    Our previous 10 plus reviews have had no such issues experienced and no changes have been made and no bug sprays have been used, only standard polish. Regarding other comments, this is an old cottage but please do feel free to contact me direct to discuss your feedback, I have provided Sykes with some contact numbers so you can liaise with me directly. Look forward to discussing Regards Jon and Max Skirton Property Owner

About the location

LOSTWITHIEL

Bodmin 5.5 miles; Fowey 7 miles.

A delightfully peaceful country town, nestling in the Fowey river valley amid the woods and fields that characterise the area. Renowned as a centre for the antiques trade, there are several shops and dealers in the town, as well as a fine collection of country pubs, restaurants and a thriving farmer’s market. Lanhydrock House (NT) and gardens is just 3 miles away, while the fabulous Boconnoc House, Eden Project, shipwreck museum and tall ships harbour at Charlestown, and the picturesque fishing villages of Mevagissey, Fowey and Padstow, with the famous Rick Stein restaurants, are all within easy driving distance. The tumbling Atlantic surf, long sandy beaches and dramatic coastline of the north coast, including at the renowned Newquay, make for great days out and there is also chance to enjoy river canoeing, biking, hiking and leisurely walks in this lovely area. The friendly locals also have ongoing activities, such as the raft race, the famous tug of war, Carnival week and seagull outboard motor races. The river Fowey runs from the town on its 8 mile journey through the fields and wooded valleys to the gentler southern coast, a natural paradise for those who love the sea. Centrally placed, with much to do and see in the immediate area, Lostwithiel is the perfect choice for those seeking a break away from the hectic pace of the tourist resorts.
